Along the way, his adventures are recorded by the people he meets and helps, and by the end of his trip he has unwittingly become a social media celebrity.

Timothy Spall as an old man who as a young man moved from Land’s End in Cornwall to a northern point in Scotland. Now, after the death of his wife (Phyllis Logan) he decides to take a bus trip back to Land’s End … something over 830 miles. Along the way he meets a lot of people and has several experiences and becomes a hashtag celebrity on social media.
While Spall is quite good, the story seems lacking. We get flashback glimpses that fill out his life as a young man, but his life as an old man in Scotland is left pretty blank. We can guess what his purpose is for trekking to Cornwall and the ending is rather flat. Although it seems like it is, it is not based on a true story.
Art Carney’s HARRY AND TONTO came to mind, but this film has not of the humor of the former film. And although Spall’s character would likely be totally unaware of his own 15 minutes of fame on social media, the people who would have watched the videos and pictures posted would be much more intrusive than what we’re shown. His trip to Cornwall would have been strewn with selfies.
The expected ending, which should be an emotional high point, falls flat. Like an oil slick in a puddle.
Naysayers gonna nay, but this is really sweet, it’s a great movie, a story very well told of character and life lived for love.
